New Redwood Hostel receives initial funding from the California Coastal Conservancy

We're happy to announce that our goal to reopen a Redwood National Park hostel is now one step closer to reality! The California Coastal Conservancy has awarded up to $144,500 to the National Park Service, to select a site within Redwood National and State Parks and complete preliminary architectural designs for a Redwood Hostel by July 2012.

Closing Day

January 18 is Closing Day for the Redwood Hostel. On that day, the last guests will check out, and the hostel will be closed for the foreseeable future.

A Farewell Celebration for the Redwood Hostel

As the Redwood Hostel closes its doors indefinitely, we gather with community members, colleagues, hostel guests, and staff past and present, to celebrate the rich and varied history of this unique place.

An important tribal site, a pioneer homestead, and for the past 22 years, a hostel welcoming travelers from around the world — this is a place that has meant so much to so many. Please join us as we say farewell.
